7:06 pm

7:54 pm
so that day is here. >> it's like playing after a long nap, he's so talented. i think the main thing with kevin is just to find the rhythm of the game. so i'm not even worried about what his jumper looks like, it's more just conditioning and timing. >> while durant is back, the other mvp may be out. steph curry officially listed as doubtful today, with a left knee contusi contusion, otherwise known as a bruise, not believed to be serious. at taugusta national has a way of bringing everybody back to earth and it happened to mr. hoffman today, the wind brisk again, ricky fowler making a charge, holding out on the sand on two for eagle. nice way to start your day. hoffman definitely looking

human, my, a 3 over today, but still tied for the lead. sergio garcia, never won an open, but hoping. he's at minus 4 as well. jordan spieth even par with phil mickelson, but it was fowler on 18, and you can't get much closer than that. 11 players are within four shots or less, including fred couples and rory mcilroy. they would love for him to be at least decent, cane making his season debut, giants 1-0 before cane even took the mound. gave it right back to the padres lead hitter. homers on the fourth pitch of the game.
7:56 pm
margo also homered in his next at-bat. cane could not 345ik it through five. allowed four runs. giants got it all back and more. one swing from brandon belt, a grand slam, maupadres will jump front again. but belt, his second homer of the became. and that turned out to be the final score as the giants drop to 1-4, 7-6 the final. two innings, including this grand salami, but the a's coming back in this game and right now trailing 8-4 in the fifth. we will have complete highlights at 9:00 and 11:00. join us tonight at 9:00 on kofi tv 20. coming up, a planet far, far away that's a lot like earth, what's been spotted that's never
